The Sisterhood of Empowerment, led by Pat Brown, administers aid to the homeless and less fortunate by coordinating volunteer efforts and donations for the greater good. For the holiday season, they’ve put together a “Rep Your City” drive along with co-sponsors Assemblyman Jamel C. Holley (D-20th Legislative District) and Councilwoman Andrea Staten (Roselle) to create Blessing Bags for the homeless. The Blessing Bags include cold weather gear (hat, gloves, clothing and blankets) along with essential toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, sanitary napkins, first aid kits, razors, soap, deodorant), socks and snacks. Many thanks to all the volunteers, which included civil servants Mr. Holley, Ms. Staten and Roselle Recreation Manager Donald Shaw; along with Pat Brown and many volunteers from the Sisterhood.
